This paper presents the design of a 4×1 MIMO antenna useful for 5G Cellular applications. The proposed antenna design consists of four T-shaped MIMO structure radiating patches on the top layer of the substrate. To improve the bandwidth and return loss characteristics, defected ground structure (DGS) is incorporated on the bottom plane along with parasitic element on both sides of patches. A single element antenna is with the size of 12mm×12mm×0.8mm and a complete
antenna is with the size of 12mm×50.7mm×0.8mm. The proposed antenna design is found to resonate at many adjacent
frequencies, rendering a large bandwidth which makes it suitable for 5G applications. The simulated and measurement
results show a wide bandwidth of 28 GHz – 44 GHz with a peak gain of 10.1 dB.
